Clin Endosc. 2021 Sep 23. doi: 10.5946/ce.2021.149. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND/AIMS: We have been developing artificial intelligence based polyp histology prediction (AIPHP) method to classify Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) magnifying colonoscopy images to predict the hyperplastic or neoplastic histology of polyps. Our aim was to analyze the accuracy of AIPHP and narrow-band imaging international colorectal endoscopic (NICE) classification based histology predictions and also to compare the results of the two methods.METHODS: We studied 373 colorectal polyp samples taken by polypectomy from 279 patients. The docum...

World J Gastroenterol. 2021 Aug 28;27(32):5351-5361. doi: 10.3748/wjg.v27.i32.5351.ABSTRACTThe close relationship of medicine with technology and the particular interest in this symbiosis in recent years has led to the development of several computed artificial intelligence (AI) systems aimed at various areas of medicine. A number of studies have demonstrated that those systems allow accurate diagnoses with histological precision, thus facilitating decision-making by clinicians in real time. In the field of gastroenterology, AI has been applied in the diagnosis of pathologies of the entire digestive tract and their attache...

CONCLUSIONS: While some trends exist, morphologically subclassifying SSADs is probably not justified in routine clinical practice. MLH1 loss portends a greater burden of SSAs in the background colon.PMID:34542560 | DOI:10.1093/ajcp/aqab112

These cells are involved in combating some parasitic, bacterial, and viral infections and certain cancers and have pathologic roles in diseases including asthma, chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps, eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders, and hypereosinophilic syndromes. Treatment of eosinophilic diseases has traditionally been through nonspecific eosinophil attenuation by use of glucocorticoids. However, several novel biologic therapie...

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTCystic fibrosis is a progressive monogenetic disorder that causes persistent pulmonary disease, but also affects other organ systems including the digestive tract. Recent advances in treatment and care of CF patients including the use of new and highly effective CFTR modulators, have led to a dramatic increase in survival; young patients with CF can now expect to live to or beyond middle age, where cancer is more frequent. CF patients are now known to face an increased risk of digestive tract cancer-particularly cancer...
